Smile please :)

Most of us think that smile brings happiness but it's actually true the other way as well, i.e if you are sad and you still smile, you become happy.

Errr... Sushant rightly pointed out that the above should rather mean "happiness brings smile but if you are unhappy and you still manage to smile then you become happy" :)
Smiling indicates good mood and it has proven to lower heart rate.

Researches have proved that if your facial expressions depict happiness then however angry or low you might be at that moment still you tend to be happy and forget your anger or sorrow.
So just keep smiling no matter what!
For all those who have forgotten to smile I found out the way to smile through a web search:
Here's how.

1: A smile begins with the eyes. Notice a twinkle, a feeling of amusement in your eyes.
2: Notice how they move naturally as it becomes a smile with the eyes.
3: You should resist smiling with your mouth. It will only grimace, so keep it fixed.
4: When you smile with your eyes, it will spread and your mouth will move naturally and easily into a genuine smile. Let the smile with your mouth come naturally when it is ready.
5: Beam with your eyes, and keep the rest of your face motionless until it breaks into a warm, friendly smile!
Practice in the mirror. See for yourself how this technique always works and makes you much more acceptable to others. Become a magnet of beauty! Smile with your eyes!
Now few other benefits may be listed as under:
1: A smiling face always finds quick takers, so that just goes to prove that you might get marrried earlier than the rest!!
2: People who smile more are optimistic in life and hence they have a strong immune sysytem and are able to fight illnes in a better way than the pessimists.
3: A research found out that peope who smile more tend to live longer than whose who have a frowning face all the time.

And there are many more, just a google search and you find lots of benefits to smiling.

But the best point is that there is no tax on smiling. You buy happiness and joy for yourself and for others abslolutely free.
And as per Kabir 'kal kare so aj kar, aj kare so abhi', so do not hesitate,
Go ahead and Smile :) :) :)

Thats real true . But I guess coming back home smiling with a report card which basically says "abhinav flunked" is not a great idea . I did that when i was a kid . my dad was like "besharam ! fail hua aur smile kar raha hain ?"

@Sushant: Hey thanks, good catch there... I am sorry for messing it up! Yes you got that correct.

@Soul: I know dear that pinches, but I am sure you would have hated more the sympathetic pat by your dad if you had cried for a bad report card! So just smile :)

I even like plastic smiles for sometimes - the one smiled with lips and not eyes! Helps sometimes when low, of course they gotta be shortlived. I dont believe its just about eyes... it might be with the body too - as in being jolly and childish!

thats a very joyful and smiley post must say!
Got me smiling!

Niedhie said...

@Ashish: The smile without the eyes involved does not reach the heart, and so plastic smiles may be irritating too sometimes... Please try to smile with your eyes even if you are low. Try it dear, it will help :)

@Anand: Thanks for writing in, oh do not let it go,
Keep smiling :)
